clclay: Perhaps enamel is the best material for cooking... as long as it isn't damaged. But - in order to get the enamel to stick to the metal base - they use a very toxic substance, so that if you have a cracked or chipped enamel pot, it shouldn't really be used.

As enamel pots tend to chip when they're dropped on the floor, and I'm quite a clumsy person, enamel isn't the best material for me. I'll stick to ceramics and stainless steel...

I recently came across a kitchen ware demo and was told that they used titanium instead of telfon. And was told of all the good qualities you can imagine that is opposite to using telfon. I am tempted to buy them but maybe is good to let the deal go until I do more research on it.

I wonder do any of you have any feedback on that.

Thanks and with appreciation.

Dr Hulda Clarke has some very interesting books. I believe the best cookware is enamel.

Hi Jimm,

Thank you for taking the time to reply - I really appreciate it.

I know what you mean by people choosing convenience over health. They want so much short cut to save time and yet waste all their time on unimportant things and events and TV.

My daughter couldn't understand why I would take the trouble to hang all the clothes on the line when there is the convenient of dryer. And not that we are so short of cash to pay for energy.

I have not use aluminum for long time now and I have a good rice cooker I could recommend you. I use vacuum thermos cooker which is made of stainless steel and it does not need any energy at all except for the initial short boiling time. What you do is after washing the rice boil it and let it be at boiling for a couple of minutes, then you transfer the pot into the bigger pot, cover it and in about half an hour the rice is cooked.

I use it for soup as well. There are lots you could do with it. You can check it out the web. I am using the Shuttle chef brand - it's been very good.
Another idea is to check out the latest rice cooker, think there might be stainless steel inner pot by now.

You were asking about deodorant - well I don't use any at all - don't see the need to. However, my student recently present me one which is Aluminum Chlorohydrate free, Paraben free and Fragrance free. It says naturally fresh deodorant crystal marketed by TCCD International.

Hmm, wonder why she present me one. lol.

p.s. thank you for the info. on deodorant - it would be useful to make my kids aware of this.

Dear Precious Lotus,
You ask: "Does anyone know about safe utensils?"
You may know this already, but many people don't, so I'll add it here:
DON'T use aluminium! Especially not for cooking, but also not for eating.
It increases the dangers of Alzheimer's disease. My mother has this. Unfortunately (having spent much of her life in Hong Kong) she has an electric Chinese rice-cooker - and they dont seem to MAKE them without aluminium inner pots. (If anybody knows of a brand that DOES make them in stainless steel, PLEASE tell me!)
Whenever I cook rice for her, I do so on the stove with a stainless steel pot. But others who care for her find it easier to use the electric rice cooker, and trivialise the dangers of the aluminium (convenience is more important than health!) I have toyed with the idea of just throwing this cooker out... and may do so. But then, somebody would probably just buy her a replacement.

While on the subject of aluminium, this is present - in the form of alum - in MOST commercial deoderants. Now deoderants are used on body parts where the blood vessels are close to the surface (helping you to sweat more efficiently) and the alum makes its way in the other direction into your bloodstream. I used to be in love with my deo-crystal, because it wasn't perfumed and it was VERY efficient. But since I realised that this was almost pure alum crystal, I've stopped using it. Most healthy, natural deoderants are too expensive (and often perfumed), so I just shower more often... or smell!
Does anyone know of a cheap, safe, UNPERFUMED deoderant? (I find the smell of fresh sweat attractive - much more so than lilacs or honeysuckle. But stale sweat can be a real turn-off!)

Wow, thank you all for such great info.I need to come back and check them out in one by one.
Does anyone know about safe utensil. Sometimes I wonder whether would glass or poreclain, baking tin, containers contain lead that might leak or some how get into us.
I have an article on life hazard tires - wonder whether does it fit into this forum. Think I will post it on the blog soon so all could see.

If you buy with the leaping bunny logo...not only it is natural, but no animals were harmed, or by products, tested on animals. It really states that the company has made a honest long term stance, not just words.
